As the No. 1 seed in the College Football Playoff, Georgia had the right to select their semifinal site. Unsurprisingly, the Bulldogs selected the Peach Bowl in Atlanta – approximately 70 miles away from Athens – instead of the Fiesta Bowl in Glendale, Ariz.
Georgia will travel a bit further for the College Football Playoff National Championship.
Where Is the College Football Playoff National Championship?
